JRS Malta publishes new report highlighting the dangers faced by asylum seekers in Libya
"Beyond Imagination" says lives are at risk
“Through this publication we wanted to highlight the consequences of return to Libya for asylum seekers, by bringing to light the stories we hear repeatedly when they arrive in Malta. Most have suffered horrific abuse – including indefinite detention in miserable conditions, beatings, rape and other forms of sexual abuse – and are denied the possibility of obtaining any kind of protection,” said Katrine Camilleri, JRS Malta Director.
